“I’ve been a big admirer of Femi since playing against him early in the season,” said O’Hara, whose side’s FA Trophy third qualifying round tie with Hampton & Richmond Borough was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch on Saturday.

“He has set the league alight with his dynamic play and by scoring great goals.”
